A little known fact about me...I love decorating for the 4th of July ALMOST as much as I love decorating for Fall...annnnd Christmas. I love the color combos, flags, fireworks...the whole shebang!
Today, I'm sharing a few pics from around the house of my patriotic decor. Typically, I put these out right before Memorial Day in May and leave it up through the 4th. It just all screams Summer to me!
Thanks to my friend, Emilee for inspiring me to add something festive to my kitchen chalkboard. She always dresses her chalkboard up and for some reason, I've never thought to do that myself. She's probably created a new monster in me.
For my floating shelves in the kitchen, I just added a few flags, candle holders and a canvas I painted several years ago.
Our entry table...you guessed it...cute printables found through Google! They're my favorites each season...and more flags!
I bought these cute sparkly signs this year at Dollar Tree. I knew I could find a place for them, so I snagged them up in a hurry!
On to our mantel and the weird lighting camera effect on the picture. Who knows.
I've had this Old Glory sign for YEARS. No shame in admitting that my decor came from Tractor Supply. We are from TN after all.
I love, love, LOVE sparkly picks and garlands and glittery things, so it goes without saying this end of the mantel is my favorite. I mean, how can it not be?
I just love this time of year! I don't necessarily love the humidity, but I love Summer in general. Everyone just seems a bit more laid back, more time spent with friends and family, and fun Summer celebrations!
It might be cliche to say, but it's oh so true. We're able to live in this land of the free because of the brave! Take a moment over this long holiday weekend to appreciate our nation's founding fathers, those who have bravely served our country to ensure our freedom, and most importantly our Heavenly Father, the giver of all of our daily gifts and freedoms. Our eternal freedom is through His Son.
Happy early 4th friends!!
